You're buying and selling quite a few guns by the look of it. You should know how to avoid being scammed.

 

The whole thing stinks.

SIMPLE, You say its being collected then cash on collection is obviouse so what problem can there possibly be,

Whoever picks it up brings cash..

 Why involve paypal, A bit fishy or do you just like getting scammed.  No problem doing a bank transfer to your account......Sounds like paranoia is setting in.

Wasn't massa the one who also used to buy and sell a lot of airguns who also got scammed? :whistling:

 

And wasn't massa the one who also posted a topic telling us to "be aware" of scammers, instead of using the word "beware"?

 

I wonder if there any other similarities between these unlucky guys?

It seems most cons via Paypal are from abroad. Always read the email VERY carefully and dont let the excitement of selling your item blur your vision. There are always clues i.e. spellings phrases and expressions or terms such as shipping agent. Nobody in the u.k. selling to the u.k. uses shipping agents.

better of with face to face anyway, if you want something that is getting sold for a good price just pay a bit more for it in petrol, you know exactly what you are buying and no chance of getting ripped
